Using Numbers at Work and at Home

Statistics and probability are sections of mathematics that deal with data collection and analysis. Probability is the study of chance and is a very fundamental subject that we apply in everyday living, while statistics is more concerned with how we handle data using different analysis techniques and collection methods.

Statistics and probability are sections of mathematics that deal with data collection and analysis. Probability is the study of chance and is a very fundamental subject that we apply in everyday living, while statistics is more concerned with how we handle data using different analysis techniques and collection methods.

The essential purposes of the mathematical literacy requirement are that, as the learner progresses with confidence through the levels, the learner will grow in the following areas:

Confident, insightful use of mathematics in the management of the needs of everyday living to become a self-managing person. An understanding of mathematical applications that provides insight into the learner’s present and future occupational experiences and so develop into a contributing worker. The ability to voice a critical sensitivity to the role of mathematics in a democratic society and so become a participating citizen.
